Explore a Museum
Museums provide plenty of new things to talk about. Admission tends to be inexpensive, so it’s a cheap, fun way to spend the day. Afterward, head to the nearest coffee shop for hot chocolate with all the extras and a recap of your favourite exhibits.
Make a Photo Story
It’s never been easier to take photos and make films. So write a script, take centre stage, and ask your date to direct. Alternatively, film your dog looking cute or doing a trick.
Stay in and play a fun card game, like Cards Against Humanity or Exploding Kittens. A little competition is a sure fire way to get things heated up!
Have a Hometown Picnic
Take a drive to one of your hometowns and pick up food from one of your old favourite places. Spend the afternoon chowing down and get closer by talking about the place you grew up.
Cook a Meal Together
Open your favourite cookbook at a random page and turn up the heat as you follow the recipe. Just don’t argue over who does the washing up!
Attend a Free Event
Look for free events on tourist board websites. Museums give free talks and tours, charities organise festivals, and pubs put on quiz nights and music. You also get free entry to historical buildings on certain days of the year – National Trust operate similar open days.
Bring the Cinema to You
Draw the curtains, grab some popcorn and settle down in your living room to watch your favourite. If it’s a sunny evening, get your deckchairs and laptop out, and enjoy a film alfresco.
Text them a clue and see if they set off in the right direction for the next one. You could also try Geocaching, an outdoor treasure hunting game.
Try Something New
How often does your other half talk about a hobby that you have absolutely zero interest in? And how often have you seen his eyes glaze over when you talk about The Bachelor? For one evening each, both of you should involve yourself in each other’s passions. Whether it’s video games or learning a new skill. Who knows, you might actually enjoy it.
Break a Sweat Together
Bear with me here. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, you could even try laser tag. When you’re done, grab a couple of smoothies, and if you’re really feeling nice, give each other shoulder rubs to work out any sore spots!
